Name origin
===Name origin===
Blastoise's name is a combination of ''blast'', referring to its cannons, and ''[[wp:tortoise|tortoise]]''. The ''kame'' in ''Kamex'' comes from the Japanese word for tortoise/turtle, 亀.
Blastoise's name more likely comes from the word [[wp:Blastoid|Blastoid]], which are an extinct type of [[wp:echinoderm|echinoderm]] with fossils that look like small hickory nuts.
